State Senator Win Stoller (R-Germantown Hills) issued the following statement after the Governor signed House Bill 370 into law, which officially repeals the Parental Notice of Abortion (PNA) of 1995:
“Today the Governor officially turned his back on the rights of Illinois parents by signing the repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act.
“Every parent has a fundamental responsibility to ensure the physical and mental wellbeing of their children. It is a parent’s duty to know about important healthcare decisions and procedures that their children make, so that they can care and support them.
“However, by signing this bill, the Governor has made it clear to the parents who live across our state that he believes that they have no right to be involved or even know about their daughter’s healthcare.”
